some significant differences. host: we heard a bit in the debate last week about where mitt romney stands on his tax plan. here is a headline coming to us. in the fog of numbers, there is little tax clarity from obama and romney. $5 trillion, whether or not tax cuts will equal $5 trillion. there is a difference in this number. guest: the $5 trillion is the gross cost of reducing rates 20% across the board. the. gov. romney made is it is unfair to call it a tax cut because he intends to offset the cost through base broadening. i think one thing that was interesting is although gov. romney has proposed 20%, he did not actually mentioned that number in the debate. i think what he did emphasize instead is he was not going to add to the deficit or increase taxes on the middle class. analyses has been done that shows it is a little bit difficult to keep those while cutting the rate by 20%. the decision not to mention the 20% number suggests that is where he will likely adjust his plan. he will stick with this plan of not raising taxes on the middle- class or adding to the deficit. host:

portman, the one that plays president obama in the debate camp practice sessions. mitt romney is getting ready for the next session, next debate, hoping his mum carries over next week. >> john harwood is cnbc's chief washington correspondent. thanks for being here. i don't know if it's possible to strip politics away from these new unemployment numbers, but if you can, explain, does the president get credit for these numbers coming down, and how real are they? >> well, the president gets credit or blame for whatever the economic conditions are on his watch. these are numbers that are better than they've been, but they're still not good numbers. 7.8% is a high unemployment rate. we've got an economy that's not growing very fast. but it's certainly good news for the president to be able to say that 7.8%, the rate when i took office, we're back down there again. but i think people make too much political impact of these jobs numbers, because they don't need a government statistic to tell them how they feel about it. >> but then you have somebody influential like jack welch who tweets someth
no access to who the donors are. mitt romney has said in, um, one of the republican debates that he would be for, in his ideal future system, um, the super pacs would merge with his campaign, anybody could give him unlimited amounts of money, but there would be immediate disclosure to -- so the people would know and be able to track any concern about the appearance of corruption. my guess is that's sort of next place to go to. and in this age the sec is a particularly dysfunctional body. trevor can tell you more -- [laughter] the than me, but, you know there is no good proportion mechanism we have. we've had for a while for most of these things in any real time, and also the disclosure mechanisms, though they're improving, remain far behind what is possible today. it should be the case that as soon as they're cashing the check, there's no reason that that money can't show up in a database that is posted online, um, from any group that's spending money and influence. so that would be my guess of where you go next. i think the other political thing that will happen here is that, um, whateve
